Barta Turbo Swizzle is redesigned bartender`s tool for preparing TIKI and Swizzle tropical cocktails. When developing it, we wanted to take the most of the traditional tool to have an even more productive result. Its name and shape are inspired by the original swizzle stick made of a plant called Quararibea turbinata, but unlike its organic prototype this product is a skillfully processed tool which confidently claims to be a global trend of functional design.
First of all, tool’s cap is not just a reference to its original name (turbinata), but also a technological solution to swirl the mixture of crush and cocktail into a powerful whirlpool. Owing to the innovative direction of nozzles, which repeat the shape of a propeller, Barta Turbo Swizzle allows you to achieve the highest aeration of a cocktail – saturate it with oxygen – from the maximum resistance. Thus, it allows you to quickly mix a cocktail using the swizzle method, as everyone knows that swizzle is one of the most aerating methods for preparing cocktails.
Second, when mixing, a drink only contacts with wood, which gives us a huge advantage in comparison with metal swizzle sticks, where owing to heat conduction of metal the drink quickly saturates with hydrogen and has no time to cool down properly. The wooden part of swizzle stick is designed to prepare over 1,000 cocktails and can be easily replaced with a new one at any time, its handle with the special knurling enables a better grip with palms and saves energy and time of work, while thanks to the downward-directed balance of the swizzle stick the tool does not jump during work like its plant analogue.
